Read more about Arnie’s story below:
When we received the plea for help from our friends at DeKalb County Animal Services, our hearts broke for sweet Arnie. We immediately transferred him into our care and secured him a loving foster home.
At only 11 months old, he was covered head to toe in itchy mange, painful sores, and open wounds. He also had an upper respiratory infection that needed immediate attention.
His paws were swollen and inflamed from his severe skin infection, so our Shelter Medicine Team offered him a soothing medicated bath, antibiotics for the infection, and treatment for the itchy mange.
Despite the neglect this pup has endured in his short life, we can tell he is truly grateful for his second chance. Thanks to your support, we were able to take immediate action and offer him the kind of comfort he has never known before.
Arnie still has months of treatment and healing ahead of him, and we cannot wait to see how incredible he looks after receiving consistent, top-quality care from our Shelter Medicine Team.
